Recurring firm skin coloured pimples on inner thigh. Herpes?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Sometimes they go away within 24 hours, sometimes a week. Sometimes when it dries, it dries as a shiny scale on the skin. Could it be herpes? Or something else? Two doctors in sexual health clinics have looked at it and said it's definitely not, however I haven't had a blood test yet. The doctor said it could be eczema

      The pic I've attached here shows the icons:
